  • Working with Katie was one of the best things we did for our wedding day. She helped with all the details, timeline and making the day and all around success! With her we did not have to worry on the wedding day about all the vendors coming together and we knew our day was in good hands! Totally worth it and are so thankful we had her and her team!

  • I hired Katie as my Wedding Day Director - but she was so much more than that. Katie was available and responsive even months before my wedding to give advice on vendors and to learn our vision. She executed the layout and decor at our DIY barn wedding perfectly as we envisioned. Katie was so helpful as we planned our wedding from long distance and helped with so many of the last minute logistics when we arrived the weekend of the wedding, from picking up my flowers to taking us to BJs to buy soda. She confirmed all my vendors and managed all the day of logistics, taking away any day-of stress. I would highly recommend Katie!

  • Katie was the biggest help for me during my wedding process. She kept me on track with my planning and budgeting, was there to help and give advice whenever I needed it and most of all she made sure that everything was absolutely perfect on the day of. I truly am so thankful for all her hard work. My day would not have been even half as special if it was not for the hard work of Katie and her team!

  • My husband Joe and I hired Katie as our Day-Of Coordinator for our wedding, and it was hands-down one of the best decisions we made! Katie went above and beyond in assisting us, not just on the day itself, but leading up to the event as well. Katie was always the consummate professional: she quickly responded to any questions we had along the way, met with us several times during our planning process to help shape our event, provided meticulous contract review of our vendors, walked through the ceremony and reception sites with us, and gave indispensable advice along the way. Our wedding day ran so smoothly and we did not have to worry a bit about anything knowing that Katie and her assistant Kali were running things behind the scenes and making sure all went as planned. We highly recommend Katie and her team to anyone looking for wedding or event coordination!

  • I am a DJ, and have worked with Katie from Festivities several times. From another professional's point of view, she is really a pleasure to work with -- she takes care of every little detail, it's so nice to see that her brides just love her, because she takes so much of the stress out of the day for them. And for other vendors working the wedding, it's refreshing to have things move along so smoothly, because she has everything covered. One more thing -- flexibility -- many times, things will have to change at the last minute, due to unforeseen circumstances. At a couple of the weddings I've worked with her, this happened, and it's impressive to watch the smooth transition from one plan to another. I would definitely trust her with my wedding! :)

  • I could not have asked for better planners. Katie's assistants Mandy and Christina did an amazing job putting it all together. They made sure everything went as planned and if things got off track they made sure to get it back to where it needed to be. They listened to everything we wanted and they made sure they got it done. Katie did an amazing job planning and she can definitely count on her assistants for anything. I am so glad we hired Festivities! Thank you all!

  • We could not have done it without Katie!!! She was on top of everything and as accommodating as she could possibly be. She was the reason the day went flawlessly!! I would highly recommend her!!

Katie and her staff took care of every detail and we very flexible when issues came up!! My daughter's Wedding Day was a magical experience thanks to Katie!!!

  • Attempting to plan a barn wedding in the Finger Lakes/Ithaca, NY region while living in California required a ton of work and were SO lucky to have found Katie. We started working with Katie about a year before our wedding and she was both pleasant and professional throughout the entire planning process. We set up regular Skype meetings, met in Ithaca twice and found that she was always available via phone/email...which was great considering I always had tons of questions!! As for the actual wedding weekend, Katie was there to help us set up the barn the day before and returned the day of the wedding with her assistant to continue setting up and kept us on schedule throughout the day. I didn't have to think twice about anything thanks to Katie and her assistant taking care of every detail perfectly...we even had last minute decorations sent to Katie's house that she brought to Ithaca the day before the wedding. We highly recommend hiring Katie as your wedding planner. I don't th... Read more

  • Katie was an absolute life saver throughout the entire planning process and even more so on the day of the wedding! I tend to like control over everything and Katie allowed that but also took care of things that I didn't even know about! From unclogging a bathroom sink, to finding a cake cutter, to sweeping broken glass off the dance floor.. she was everything we wanted/needed and then some!! If you want support and guidance he ought the entire process Katie os the perfect person for you.

  • Katie and her team were wonderful to work with. Leading up to the wedding Katie was always in touch helping us through logistics and offering vendors when asked. On site and the day of the wedding, I didn't have to worry about anything going on. Katie had everything under control and if anything came up she was sure to take care of it without bothering me. I really enjoyed being able to relax that morning and not worry about what was happening. It was a pleasure working with her team and I would definitely recommend them to other brides!
